In DeLay's Pocket
Now that Tom DeLay has been forced to step down because of his indictment, you probably think the problem has been solved; the tumor has been removed.
DeLay’s corruption and contamination have metastasized throughout the entire House of Representatives. The entire body is sick. The patient is in critical condition.
Or you could compare DeLay to a computer virus. You think you’ve eliminated it, but then other programs and functions keep getting hijacked and corrupted. Your antivirus and anti-spyware programs keep telling you “no infections found” even while your computer is infested with spyware, adware and viruses.
Or think of that famous line from Poltergeist: “This house is clean.”
Now, help is on the way. This site won’t cure the illness, but it gives you a clear look at just how far the tumor has spread; which body parts are diseased. Or (whichever analogy you like better) you can see exactly which programs and processes have been corrupted by the virus.
Don’t get complacent and think “I live in a blue state; DeLay doesn’t have any influence here,” or “my local representative is cool; he/she wouldn’t have anything to do with that douchebag.”
You need to brace yourself and look at the x-ray and see exactly where the damage is. The home page of this site lists the top 25 offenders in the House — who’s received the most campaign money from DeLay, who’s contributed the most to his defense fund and what percentage of the time they’ve voted according to The Hammer’s instructions.
Another menu shows a state-by-state rundown of which reps have been corrupted by The Sickness. Check it out. Forewarned is forearmed.
